She Has A Lot Of Responsibilities As A Cop, But She Never Passes By An Animal In Need

While most police officers are tasked to protect and serve the people in their communities, one cop is going above and beyond to ensure that every stray feline she comes across is cared for.

Gretchen Byrne has spent 18 years on the Boca Raton police force and she’s known as the cop who just can’t get enough of cats. In fact, she regularly brings home the stray cats she finds and gives them love and nourishment all out of her own pocket until they can be re-homed.

When she’s busy, her new feline friends hang with other officers at the precinct!

The crazy cat cop also spends her breaks and lunch hours feeding and caring for the cuties.

She’s taken over 60 cats in need under her wing!

When news of her animal-loving ways got around town, she started getting calls from other cops and community members when they found strays.

Once the kitties are good to go, she helps find them homes through an Instagramaccount.

Life is busy for this committed cop, but she wouldn’t have it any other way. Learn more about her in the video below!

Science Says Dogs HATE Being Hugged?

A recent article in Psychology Today tells us that our dogs do not like hugs as much as we do!

While you might love embracing your fellow canines, it turns out dogs are “cursorial animals.” In laymen’s terms, it means dogs are designed for “swift running. That implies that in times of stress or threat the first line of defense that a dog uses is not his teeth, but rather his ability to run away.”

By hugging your dog, you’re essentially taking away their main defense mechanism and significantly raising their stress levels. It could even raise levels high enough to cause the dog to bite whoever is doing the hugging.

So, go ahead and pet your pups but for the love of Beethoven, don’t hug them.

Brown Bears In Armenia Are Forced To Live In Tiny Cages To Entertain People

 

Wild animals are often exploited for the benefit or entertainment of other people. Brown bears in Armenia are, unfortunately, no exception.

Across the former Soviet republic are captive bears housed in small cages at restaurants, bus depots, shopping centers and even factories. Many were caught as cubs and forced to spend their lives in these tiny prisons, all for the entertainment of tourists, diners, commuters, and shoppers. Thats why the non-profit organization International Animal Rescue (IAR) has launched The Great Bear Rescue, a mission to save them.

“Some have been living for years in small, barren cages, surviving only on scraps and filthy, stagnant water and standing on stinking mounds of their own feces,” said IAR Chief Executive Alan Knight.

“Many of them relieve their boredom and frustration by pacing endlessly to and fro, banging their heads against the walls or climbing up the bars, searching frantically for an escape route.”

“They have been robbed of their dignity and their freedom, all for people’s idle entertainment. It sickens me.”

Walking around the city is enough to leave anyone feeling tired, and these adorable monkeys are no exception.

Having had enough of using their own two feet for transportation, these two cheeky nuggets decided to hop aboard an unsuspecting motorcyclist’s bike to make up for lost time. The two hold on for dear life as the motorist continues to speed down the busy street.

Next time these two might want to consider calling an Uber.
